Dating from the reign of Louis XIV, the Château de Gudanes, a Class 1 Historic Monument, was discovered in crumbling disrepair in 2013 by an Australian couple, Craig and Karina Waters, who fell in love with the property and began a painstaking revitalization. Their ultimate aim throughout the project, which they have documented step-by-step on Instagram to the delight of their nearly 220,000 followers, has been to “tread lightly and gently—to preserve the atmosphere and authenticity of the château and region as much as possible.”
“Beginning this summer, the château, located near the village of Château-Verdun in the South of France, will open its doors to guests who are keen to offer hands-on help with the restoration alongside expert artisans, learn to prepare exquisite meals using ingredients sourced from local markets and foraged in the surrounding landscape, or simply relax poolside.”
